Recipe Ideas

Mint Sun Tea

In a clean 1qt glass jar with a lid, place 1-2 regular or decaffeinated tea bags in along with a half cup of fresh crushed/bruised mint leaves. Cover with cold filtered water leaving 1 inch at the top. Place the top on the jar loosely, then put the jar in the sun for 2 hours. Remove the tea bags and mint leaves, add sweeter, replace top, shake jar to mix or enjoy as it is over ice.

DIY Herb Dip

Making up your own herb dip recipe is easier than it sounds.

Start with a base such as:

Cream Cheese, sour cream, Greek or plain yogurt, mayo

These base suggestions can be mixed or can stand alone.

Add salt and herbs a little at a time…

Salt is an important flavor enhancer and can be added a pinch at a time.

Herbs such as: Dill, dried onion power, chives, thyme, parsley, tarragon, garlic

A little squeeze of fresh lemon juice can be nice to add.

Be sure to mix and taste as you go. Sometimes your dip may need a little time for flavors to mingle. If you think your dip is just about where you want it, let it sit in the fridge for a while and try it again before adding more of anything.

Have a taste tester handy such as, crackers, chips, carrot, celery, peppers, etc. to see what your dip may need more of.

If you keep track of what and how much you add, and it comes out really tasty, you’ll have a recipe to follow in the future.

You are welcome to look for a recipe to try too.
